This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

another flower

hydrangea Quickfire
Hardy Hydrangea, Hydrangea Quick Fire™. This is a new bush in my front yard. Its been in bloom all summer. I'm wondering where I could squeeze in more.

It started blooming as a white lace cap and gradually turned pale pink, and now a deep rich pink. Wonderful.

Thank you for the picture! Hydrangeas are a favorite of mine and that one is so very pretty and sweet - it looks like it is blushing!

So so pretty. Which is the name, "hardy hydrangea" or "hydrangea quick fire" ??
Your website is a real tranquil place I can "go" when I feel the need. Thank you.
